Abstract:

IN THIS PHASE I EFFORT WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF A PASSIVE REMOTE SENSING INFRARED DEVICE THAT ACCURATELY AND IN REAL-TIME PROFILES ATMOSPHERICTEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, AND REFRACTIVE INDEX. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS A LOGICAL EXTENSION OF A PREVIOUSLY SUBMITTED THEORETICAL AND NUMERICAL ALGORITHM STUDY WITH THE ARMY RESEARCH OFFICE. SINCE THEIR CHARTER IS FOR BASIC THEORETICAL RESEARCH ONLY, WE ARE PROPOSING A RELATED SBIR EFFORT TO BRING THEORY TO PRACTICE. IN PHASE I WE WILLDEMONSTRATE ENGINEERING FEASIBILITY BY ADAPTING OUR EXISTINGRADIOMETER TO RECOVER TEMPERATURE PROFILES IN ACTUAL FIELD CONDITIONS AND THEN DEVELOP AN OPTIMIZED HARDWARE DESIGN FOR PHASE II CONSTRUCTION. IN PHASE II WILL CONSTRUCT A PROTOTYPE, CALIBRATE IT AND TEST IT AT THE 1000 FOOT NOAA BOULDER ATMOSPHERIC OBSERVATORY TOWER.
